Principal is charged with possession of cocaine

TAMPA, Fla. (AP)- Drugs in school is a serious problem. But here's one for the books.

A Florida middle school principal is charged with possession of cocaine and soliciting to purchase cocaine on school property.

The felony carries a minimum sentence of three years in prison.

Police say Anthony Giancola, principal of Tampa's Van Buren Middle School, was arrested in the school lobby Thursday after buying 20 dollars' worth of crack from an undercover officer while students were on campus.

In speaking with BigBigNews, a school district spokesman said, "Florida has a reputation for being a bit crazy, but paying $20 for crack is just plain absurd." [Source: link]
